gap that's there was widened by the great display put on by some of the speakers, from michelle obama to ledbetter. they were all substantive. i don't see it the way charles season. i know where those glasses. >> i caught up with mark shields on the hot, crowded streets of charlotte. >> democrats have to make a choice. if it is a referendum on whether barack obama has done a good job, they are in trouble. >> what are you going to do for us for the next four years? did we get any answer to that? >> i was absolutely stunned. that was one of the andes speeches i've ever heard on a national stage. -- emptiest speeches i've ever heard on the national stage. incidentally, if he is so proud of his record, his three great legislative attempts -- obamacare, a stimulus, cap-and- trade -- no mention whatsoever in the speech. he cannot speak about his past, his own agenda, and when he talked about the future, he pulled numbers out of had. 100,000 new teachers, 600,000 people working and natural gas, 2 million people on retraining. these are numbers invented. he did not explain once. he did not sa
. the early nights were very strong. there was -- michelle obamaways -- michelle obama's speech went out well in the hall and outside as well. president obama was nolt quite the president obama that many thought he might be. the rhetoric was not soaring. but in many ways, the speech was similar to what he did in 2008. it talked about what he wants to do in the future. but most it was i want to frame this choice in a way that's most helpful to me and most damaging to governor romney. and i think that while the speech didn't get great reviews, the people i talked to today about it think that he did what he needed to do in terms of reaching specific audiences with specific messages. gwen: i went through the speech while he was delivering it last night, peter, and counted i think 19 times he used that formulation "choice" or "choose." he likes that, doesn't he? >> it's become the mantra of this year. and looking at this speech versus the one four years ago when he used the word "promise" 40 times and this this is -- that was the time of promise this is a franchise and a choice of two as he sees i
. that was the point with the bill clinton michelle obama biden sort of testifying for him. i thought it was probably just a little bit better than the president's speech. >> laura: marianne bide is a collosal character he has -- colorful character. he has a lot of friends in washington. he has ability to connect with regular folks. i find him very endearing. i'm going to get tons of hate meal for that -- hate mail for that is he endearing. does the endearing biden flip the switch for any voters? >> absolutely. i mean he is a regular joe. and he comes off as the guy next door. and that is his calling. >> laura: he is not. he is the vice president. >> but he is the guy? scranton getting up there and saying you know what? i work with barack obama every day up close and personal. i see him in his good moments and his bad. let me tell you, he has got what it takes to be a great president for another four years. and to kirsten's point, that's what every speech each night was designed to do. michelle obama validated that barack obama is a good guy and came up just like they -- everybody else, low working c
, talking about what we have done, where we are going and getting out to vote. you saw both michelle obama and the former president bill clinton speak very directly, we forget, this is about getting people out there, the yard signs don't vote, people vote. people vote with or without i.d.s depending on the state they are in. there's a lot of issues raised in conjunction with that, but it was a contrast to tampa which felt at times more like a conference or board presentation. there was a lot of clear sort of detail about why they don't like president obama but there wasn't necessarily as much a call to arms of saying, mitt romney is your man. on joy's point when they totaled up the number of words used, the word obama was used more than romney at both conventions. that's not necessarily bad for the republicans because they have to both convince the country to fire one guy and hire another. >> right. if you don't vote for president obama, the only alternative is, of course, governor romney. leslie, let me ask you this, one could say i disagree with the party, i don't like what was said, i t

convention was a never-ending train of friends of the report. to name just a few-- first lady michelle obama. san antonio mayor julian castro. new york mayor corey booker. education secretary arne duncan. singer/songwriter james taylor. even the symbol of our country, the american flag. how could you betray me like that, flagworth. i should string you up on a pole. ( laughter ) folks, all of these people were on my show and, therefore, received the coveted colbert bump. and the success, the success of the dem convention can mean only one thing-- the bump has gone rogue. ( laughter ) i've lost control of it. now, folks, i prayed this day would never come, but evidently, even god was powerless to stop the bump. probably because he's never gotten it. come on my show, mr. god! ( cheers and applause ) now, answer my calls. never answers. now i know what you're thinking, stephen, you created the bump. surely you can take it away from these democrats. no, it's not that simple. you see, all bumps operate on the same frequency. it's just like wifi-- only you can't tuz to watch porn at starbucks.
warren. >>> first lady michelle obama moved an incredible moving speech which combined her love for her country and her love for her husband an her kids. she talked about working hard, doing what you're supposed to do with honesty and inted gri and she did it with tears in here ey eyes. these are the kinds of things they're trying to pass on to their children. this is what most stood out to me. >> at the end of the day my most important title is still mom in chief. my daughters are still the heart of my heart and the center of my world. >> joining me now is kristin rowe-finkbeiner. you were down in charlotte. you spoke at a meeting of the women's caucus, i think the same morning that michelle obama was speaking. what's your reaction to that line? what does that line mean to you? >> i love that line. that line was like a modern feminist statement. one of the reasons for that is that 80% of women do have children by the time we're 44 years old, but too often women have to hide the fact that we have children, we hide the pictures in our offices, we don't talk about our children in the prof
. we should point out these numbers were taken after bill clinton spoke, after michelle obama spoke but before the president spoke. i guess the indication might be those two at least did their jobs? >> they did. president obama might have fallen flat. i've heard this from several democrats who said they weren't as strong as they anticipated. he wasn't who he was in 2008 with broad sweeping ideas. but michelle obama and bill clinton did their jobs and did it well. i was in the room and there were ear-piercing screeches from the crowds. they loved it. i think those polls reflect that. >> the did have audience seemed to appreciate it as well. just for people who might not have stayed up to watch, and bill clinton went a little longer than he was supposed to. let me play a little clip from that speech. >> he has laid the foundation for a new modern successful economy, a shared prosperity. and if you will renew the president's contract, you will feel it. you will feel it. folks, whether the american people believe or not, i just want you to know i believe it, with all my heart, i believe
after her big speech, michelle obama touted what her husband has done for gay and lesbian voters. >> whether it's passing hate crimes legislation or speaking out for the rights of all americans to be able to do what barack and i did, and marry the love of our lives. >> reporter: brianna keilar, cnn, charlotte. >> so with their conventions now behind them, president obama and mitt romney, they are fine-tuning their strategies for the sprint to november. and sounds vying for your attention. so we invented a warning you can feel. introducing the all-new cadillac xts. available with a patented safety alert seat. when there's danger you might not see, you're warned by a pulse in the seat. it's technology you won't find in a mercedes e-class. the all-new cadillac xts has arrived, and it's bringing the future forward. throughout our entire lives. ♪ one a day men's 50+ is a complete multi-vitamin designed for men's health concerns as we age. ♪ it has more of seven antioxidants to support cell health. that's one a day men's 50+ healthy advantage. to support cell health. those little t
are here. that we are here to welcome the president barack obama, the first lady, michelle, the vice president, joe biden, and jill biden. to the greatest state in the nation. we are so excited to have the fab four in new hampshire. they have come here fresh off of their fantastic speeches in charlotte. this week in charlotte reminded us again how very proud we are to have barack obama as our president and michelle obama as our first lady. president obama is fighting for what democrats have always worked for -- an economy grounded in america as -- middle-class prosperity and an economy that is built to last. present obama knows this is a make or break moment for the middle-class. in order for the middle class to thrive, we need to restore the basic values of fairness and balance that have made this country so great. if you work hard and play by the rules, if you should be able to afford a home, send your kids to college, have a secure retirement, to know the next generation is going to be better off than this generation. found theseama's are our values. this president has had the cou
think bridged the enthusiasm gap for democrats is the buildup of the three days. michelle obama was scintillating. bill clinton delivered what may have been the most effective convention address in the modern history of american politics and then barack obama capped it off with a very good speech. you could see the enthusiasm in that room and even before the polls registered the obama speech the gallup poll did show a bump for obama and did show him for the first time since the killing of osama bin laden his approval rating of 52%. >> i'm just curious how important as a historian overall are these conventions to future presidencies? they seem to be a blip and oftentimes a coronation for die hards in that particular party. >> you see the water spiraling down in the bathtub. these conventions have spiraled down in importance. they used to nominate candidates. they don't. they used to have lively substantive debates over platform. they don't. they used to make rules. nobody cares about rules, so they're now simply three-day long infomercials and that's why you folks in the media co
on tuesday night you had michelle obama reintroduce the president as a husband and loving father. then you had big dawg bill clinton come out and present his record and then president obama came out and laid out his vision. i have one pundit correction to make. i predicted that john kerry giving a speech would be a mistake. i was totally wrong. he nailed it too and fulfilled his role as well. >> cenk: absolutely. senator kerry's speech was in some ways devastating. we'll get to that. and let me add what i got wrong. i didn't think the president would take on climate change, and he did. not a joke and it was great to see. nancy, they wanted to build on their lead with women voters. do you think they did a great job doing that? >> absolutely. they knocked it out of the park. after watching the last two weeks of the convention we know what this is about, it's the vagina stupid. this is another year of the women but with a twist. never have we seen this kind of--this issue this fundamental issue for women about our freedom to decide when and if we have kids the control over our bodies linked s
, michelle obama accused her husband of driving a lousy car when they started dating. >> i could see the pavement going by in a hole in the passenger door. >> reporter: the president's first car was a ford grenada. we don't know if he was driving it when they met. unless his car taste changed, we are going to say yes. randi, victor? >> thanks. republican or democrat, nobody is safe from the late night comedians. here are some of our favorites. >> only 96,000 jobs added last month. half of those were strippers working the conventions. >> reports that nine of the hotels being used for politicians at the democratic national convention had bedbugs. yeah. when asked what it's like dealing with thousands of blood suckers, the bedbugs said, it's okay. >> a huge lighting problem in the convention hall. they worked all day on it. they still couldn't get president obama out of bill clinton's shadow. >> it takes place in charlotte, north carolina. clinton told hillary he was nowhere near charlotte, he doesn't know who charlotte is and she's a liar. >> i don't know her and she's a liar. >> octom
thought michelle obama was fantastic. and some people are suggesting that biden was even better. >> bob: i thought biden's speech was remarkably good. i think he made one or two mistakes in it. i was wrong. i thought obama would do, what is it again? mea culpa. which he did not do. >> kimberly: you promised us that. >> bob: i was wrong, and i admit it. but the thing about people dropping out of the workforce, remember that we're at the peak years coming up in the baby-boom generation and prim retiring. it has a lot to do with it. >> dana: but they don't want to retire. >> eric: this is the lost participant -- the population is increasing. >> bob: i want to say something. >> kimberly: where are you going? >> bob: that is ridiculous. >> eric: we are opposite. you wear a tie, i don't. you're liberal, i'm not. i wear -- -- i'm normal, you are not. >> dana: you're both so incredibly good looking. >> bob: can i make a point? gallup came out today and showed for the first time obama is now over 50%. since the bin laden. it's been how many months? 17 months. he did get a bounce out of the conventi
for how we're going to get through this. >> reporter: first lady michelle obama gets a better review. >> i got the clips in the morning. i thought she did a great job. >> reporter: ann romney's job now is to help her hurt better connect with women and as analysts say to humanize him. criticism his wife says is misplaced. >> because of the attacks that have been made on him i'm not surprised at all. but to not be able to talk about the part or the piece he's been out there helping other. he does these things, but guess what? he doesn't talk about those thing. so it's been my job to have to stand up and talk about those things. >> reporter: with the election two months ago, ann romney keeps up a busy campaign pace hoping to bridge that gap. she told us, i know i'll be back in virginia. julie carey, news 4. >>> mitt romney will be on "meet the press" tomorrow at 10:30 right here on nbc 4. >> what do you want first, the good or the bad news? we've got both when it comes to traffic this weekend. first the bad, metro could be a mess with track work that will affect seven stations on the red line
of their own convention and it really is sort of like a sugar high. you see somebody like michelle obama give such an incredible speech about her husband. i think anybody married to michelle obama would have gotten a bounce out of that speech. but this is not the type of thing sustainable if you have the kind of jobs numbers that president obama. we had great headlines friday morning coming out of the convention. by noon friday, all the headlines very, very negative on the jobs picture. it will be tough to sustain it. he'll have to keep pushing to keep them up. >> preceding the jobs number, anne, as we step back from the conventions, realistically, will anything that happen in either of those events have any lasting effect? >> i do think it's possible. certainly bill clinton's speech to the extent it reminded voters that these two presidents were part of the same party, they share a philosophy. there were parts of bill clinton's speech that diverged from some of the other speakers going after bain and after wall street. that was not president clinton's message. president clinton could be memo
at the democratic convention. we know that lots of folks saying michelle obama knocked it out of the park, bill clinton and obama obama were no slouches either, of course, so who other than someone named clinton or obama really impressed you? >> i think that one of the other speeches that really stuck out for me, and i know was a big hit at the convention and with folks around the country was our keynote speaker, the first latino ever for a dnc keynote speaker, julian castro. and he really, i think, impressed the crowd not just with his personal story, but with his argument about how his personal story was not just the quintessential american story, but it was a story that was possible only in this great country and that the opportunities that were available to him to make him successful are the opportunities that are at stake in this election and that it was obama's policies that he's put in place and will continue to put in place to make sure that that american dream that he is now fulfilling is going to be available to everybody, regardless of how much money you make, where you come from, wh

of fell flat on the heels of michelle obama's speech but, of course, david axelrod and campaign aides have done the same thing saying they didn't think they were going to get much of a bounce out of the convention anyway. on the heels of these two conventions, we are nowhere different than where we were before the convention, very even going into the debates. we'll have a very level playing field on october 3rd. >> heather: president obama was given a heads-up as to what this jobs report would be prior to his speech which is normal. he knew it was coming. he is campaigning today in florida, a state with the highest elderly population and unemployment rate of 8.8%. there is four key battleground states where the unemployment elevated above the national average. we mentioned florida, in nevada, 12%, north carolina, where they had the dnc. 9.9%. michigan, 9%. 735 delegates up for grabs among those states. how does the obama campaign win them over with job reports like friday's? >> what they are doing is running a very specific state by state campaign. so when you talk about michigan, presiden
at the democratic convention you might think added to president obama. bill clinton. michele gave a good speech, i think. bottom line politically bill clinton not to out of the park. >> added to president obama, but that he's attracted because she reminded the democrats a wonderful life used to be. more prosperous, but also a more normal, more same -- mainstream centers democratic party. no connection that he has ever. he is focusing on abortion, contraception, and the marriage. that is not high in anybody's polls. so, you are not here. obviously everybody is talking about this dismal jobs report. what is the political take away? >> i think it's going to be basically a a jump ball. unemployment is down. 367,000 people left the work force. >> it's not good. >> it's not good. bottom line, 70 percent think the economy is in bad shape, 65 percent said the country is off on the wrong track. that's not going to change before the election. the election is died. i fully expect it will stay tied into the debates. >> what do you think will be the breaking point? >> it's going to be the debates. for the firs
